Gorgeous boutique hotel in the heart of Old San Juan, but on a quiet street. Rooms are on the smaller side, but incredibly comfortable and clean - Old World Charm with modern amenities and a great roof deck. Staff was extremely helpful - allowing us to leave our bags on the day we checked out while we spent out last day in the city. The breakfast was minimal, but enough to get your day started. Would highly recommend this place and hope to come back on my next trip to Puerto Rico.

Room Tip: We stayed in the standard Queen room, which was the cheapest, but excellent value!

This is a gorgeous hotel. The rooms are small but the character of the building is why you stay here. Lots of good pictures of the place to show what I'm talking about(renovations are finished now).
The best part is the rooftop deck/garden at night. Great place to relax after walking back from dinner and drinks at nearby restaurants.
We went during the off season so the room wasn't very expensive.
Would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed there prior to our cruise. The inn is located in Old San Juan and is perfect! The staff and Manager are extremely helpful and the furnishings are exquisite. The only downside was that there was very little, if any hot water. Otherwise, it was a great place to stay!! We will stay there again if we get the opportunity.

Cruised on the Carnival Victory 9/16-9/23 and decided to stay in Old San Juan for an extra night so we booked this hotel

After disembarking, we took a cab here - it was at most a 10 minute ride, but not knowing the area, the heat/humidity in the triple digits and not wanting to drag three rollaboards up hill on cobblestones, it was worth the $15's ($12 for the both of us plus $1 per bag)

The hotel is a few doors down from El Convento and near the San Juan Cathedral. Not much to look at from the outside, the inside is a different story. A renovated home, the hotel was decorated with antiques and local art.

We had booked room H7, right by the front parlor that doubled as the office. King sized canopy bed, flat screen tv, HUGE shower - it was a very nice and romantic room. The only issue is the lack of natural light - there are no windows but that is due to how the house was built. The door and the bathroom had slatted windows that opened to the courtyard but was closed for obvious reasons. The lack of windows was not an issue for us.

There was a charming fountain in the courtyard leading up to the roof top terrace - two other rooms are up here as well as chairs, lounger, a canopy bed and bathtubs. It was an amazing place to hang out in the evening!

A continental breakfast is included - coffee, juice, cookies, pastries and cereal. Enought to get you started as there are so many amazing places to eat at! We had dinner at Barrachina's - the birthplace of the pina colada.

As I had stated earlier, the hotel is spitting distance to the San Juan Cathedral and in the heart of the shopping district in Calle San Franciso/Calle Fortaleza. At the end of the street is the San Juan Gate and it is a short walk to El Morro.

Check in/out was a breeze and the staff are extremely helpful and courteous

We will defintely be back and this will be our place of choice to stay!!

Leap of faith made me book this hotel, which is far from the beaches, and far from many of the many other places in Old Sanjuan. It is located in a cobble stoned winding street that leads to a vista of the sea few steps from the hotel.

The room, or the suite I had was H9 on the second floor, A small living room, a small guest room and a four post bed, bedroom. The living room has a glass ceiling and a long sofa that defines the room.

The second floor, there were also canopied sun beds to relax along with two bath tub which were rather non functional. The bathtubs reminded me of the Cialis commercial :)

However, there was just a small shower in the otherwise lovely suite. Breakfast room is downstairs immediately to the left of the entrance. Breakfast served was rather limited (Coffee,juice, bread, croissant, fruits and yoghurt.) compared to what one sees in the hotels around the caribbean islands.

There was good wifi signal even upstairs which was nice, and so were the cats that prowled the second floor. Over all, definitely worthwhile if you could snare the room upstairs. (see photos)

Room Tip: Get room H9
